Current Library Services
CONTACTLESS PICKUP services are now available.
You can place a request through the catalog at www.delcolibraries.org
For the time being, pickup hours will be M/W/F, 2pm -6pm, and T/H, 10am - 2pm.
We are working hard to keep everyone safe, and we will be wearing masks at all times, washing our hands frequently, and practicing social distancing. To ensure the items you borrow are safe, we will be quarantining all returned items for 7 days, according to CDC guidelines. Items will not be checked in until after the quarantine period, but this will not result in any fines. Wearing a mask will be required at pickup, except for those exempted for a medical condition, or under two years of age.
We are also hoping to start welcoming our patrons back into our building soon, on a limited basis. At that time and for as long as necessary for public health, the number of people in the building, the length of their visits, other services we can provide, and access to public computers will have to be limited. We know that many of our patrons are waiting for access to the same services they were used to, and we thank you for your patience as we move in that direction, while protecting everyone's health. We will be sharing more details about what to expect as we move in that direction.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
